Red Geisha Friend Book

Hi Everyone

A different book to share today.  I was asked to make this for a friends daughter who is leaving Junior School to go to Secondary School.  Some of her friends are going to different schools so we made her this book so that she could get her friends that she won't see anymore to write her a message!

This book is 6" square and cut from 2mm board. Normally I make blank pages to go in these books as they are used for journals, notes or photo albums.  This time though I decided to decorate the pages.  This did limit the amount of them but there is enough for the messages!  The Image is from Little Blue Button and is called Sweet Geisha Charlie and I coloured her using ProMarkers.  I went for a different effect with the cover and left the left hand side white rather than cover the whole lot!!  My Base/Frame Layer is a Bazzill Basics Pomegranate Shade and the patterned papers throughout are Wild Rose Studio.  I printed the sentiments off on the computer so that the young girl could fill in what year and her class.  I added Paper Flowers, a Silver/Red Heart Charm and some Red Clear Gems to finish.  I decorated the inside pages and also made a notes section on the inside of the back cover.

These three pics are one of the pages, the notes section and the back cover.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and sharing this book with me.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.
